Cello's Char house Safety Harbor Cash Only

Red Fred | Apr 11, 2003 08:47 AM

I would love to sugest Cello's Char House in Safety Harbor. This is sure not a chain pre-fab resturant. I have enjoyed this place for 4 years now and have never been disapointed. The location is right off Main st. at 143-7th ave.N. A large abstract mural adorns the building located right across from the Fire station.
The menu is small 4 entree, Steak, Pork, Chicken or Fish. With this you have a choise of 2 or 3 hand crafted sauces that rotate upon availabilty of fresh ingrediants. example; orange barbque, vidalia onion vermoth. The cranberry wallnut apple creme sauce is their signature sauce and is always available.
In addition you will get a small portion of Beer-Cheese soup, a fresh babygreen salad with a light house vinergrete and some hot flat breads.
On the dinner plate you receive a grilled chyote squash and a few pirogees, potato ravioli.
All of this cost about 10.00-12.00 Cash only at this intimate place.
The restaurant is small about 25 chairs. The decore is from a time past, World WarII posters and classic music from that era plays from a classic juke box. One warning, even regular customers get turned away if they have not made reservations. 727-723-0909 They are only open for dinner and closed Sunday and Monday.
The owners Sue Cello and Ellen Young do not have a licence for beer, wine or liquor but many of the patrons bring their own wine to enjoy with dinner.
Deserts are home make and if you have room for that you are a better man than I Gunga Din. All portions are very generous. This is a great little place in a great little town.
